The Undertaker has announced that he is retiring from the WWE as he claims he has “nothing left to accomplish” in the ring.
The 55 year old wrestling veteran made the announcement in the last episode of his documentary series ‘The Last Ride.’
After 30 years in the ring, The Undertaker made his wrestling debut in 1990 and has gone on to win every championship and event possible.
He also had an incredible winning streak at Wrestlemania that only recently came to an end.
Talking about his retirement, he said:
“I’m at a point, it’s time this cowboy really rides away. There’s nothing left for me to conquer or accomplish. The game has changed. It’s time for new guys to come up. The time just seems right”.
He also claimed that he had experienced the perfect send-off and would only return “in case of emergency” or if Vince McMahon was “in a pinch”.
Born Mark William Calaway in 1965, the wrestler was first introduced as “Kane the Undertaker” at the 1990 Survivor Series, a pay-per-view event promoted by the World Wrestling Federation.
WWE fans were introduced to the character of Sara as the wife of the Undertaker in 2001. She was indeed the wife of Mark Calaway in real life but he two divorced in 2007 and Calaway has been married to Michelle McCool since 2010.
